Q: To whom does the AVMA COE answer?
The U.S. Department of Education (USDE)
regulates educational accreditation, and the AVMA COE must adhere to its standards and follow proper reporting procedures.
AVMA COE is also recognized by a nongovernmental accreditors' recognition body called the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and must meet its requirements to remain recognized.
The AVMA COE also adheres to standards, including a Code of Good Practice, set by the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA),
a professional association for accreditors.
